Holy crap $1400 for 17" winter wheels/tires from tirerack! I might as well run my stockers w/ my runflats and buy me a set of vmr's! WTF?!

Suggestions folks?

get a cheap set of oem 17's on here and then look on ebay for a set of lightly used winters.

I got my rims for $300 shipped on here, refinished the rash myself and found tires on eBay from a dealership who had them traded into them. Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grip GW3's with 9/32nds and paid $250 for all 4... they're usually $200 per tire.

Honestly a little rash wont bother me, but everyone is asking too much for their stockers. I've got time...will keep searching! Thanks Seth! Let me know if you come across something.

noel PM WT1110 (Will) and ask if he is still has/ever sold his set of 161's w/ winters. That'd be the easiest thing for you to try 1st.

Thanks Seth! I'll PM him and see what he says....my mom says she'll help me out (early bday/christmas present) and has "an offer I can't refuse" which has got me nervous because I know somehow it's gonna be something she can hang over my head and make me feel guilty about.

I'll find out today...lol

FYI, if you find a set of rims, but no tires...I just paid $580 for Blizzak LMs from WheelSto. That includes delivery/mounting/install. I already have the tpms on my oem rims, so I didn't need those.

I'd still submit it. Although, with BMW cutting back production, I'm surprised that they were hiring at all.

meh, maybe it's better this way.

I mean the thought of making $50-$75k selling cars I love is very intriguing but then again, I'm a full time student and a bit on the lazy side. I'd almost rather do something part time like be a porter or detailer for $12/hr 3 days a week.

i know what you mean, but for now it sounds good lol. I could really use $50K-$75K lol. I mean how hard is it to sell a luxury car? Most people looking for one, are looking to buy. Moving with the significant other?

she graduates in May, but has to finish teaching till June. Then we also have this apartment till Aug so probably somewhere between then. I dunno, I might have to go early depending on when my quarters line up with her being finished. Hopefully we'll also be able to get someone to sublet the apartment or else its $1400 a month down the drain.

Dayum! $1400...you know that's almost the cost of our mortgage? That would be shitty to pay for a place you're not living in.
